Django Unchained is the newest movie from acclaimed director Quentin Tarantino, arriving in theaters Christmas day. It’s a western set in the deep south before the civil war, starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson, among others. Apparently the movie will now be receiving the comic book treatment, with “Django Unchained” #1 set to launch on December 5th, the first of a five part series. Said Tarantino: “The comic will literally be that very first draft of the script. All that material that didn’t make the movie, all of that will be part of the piece. And I’m really excited about it.” Art for the series will be done by R.M. Guera, and the books will be published by DC comics. Here’s the trailer for the movie; click below to see the first and third covers of the series by Jim Lee and Massimo Carnavale, respectively.
